Please join us for a talk & Q&A with Elizabeth Davies, reflecting on her work and this sphere of work in general.

Elizabeth Davies is a Senior Broadcast Journalist at the BBC World Service. She began her BBC career in the Washington, DC bureau and since then has worked everywhere from Brazil to Estonia. Elizabeth’s main job is as a producer on the daily Newshour programme, but she’s now branched out into making documentaries and longer-form radio programmes. Before she started with the BBC , Elizabeth worked for Channel 4 News, CNN and even the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. She studied Social and Political Sciences at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, and got her Master’s degree at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.

About the CGHR Practitioner Series:

For those hoping to pursue a career in the ‘Third Sector’, especially amidst a broad range of organisations and agencies whose mandates can be loosely collected under the umbrella headings of ‘Human Rights and Social Justice’, ‘Conflict and Security’ or ‘Development and Humanitarian Aid,’ the terrain can be difficult to navigate. A sound academic training, the kind provided by Cambridge University, is important but certainly not enough to prepare students for the transition into working in this sector. Through a mixture of substantive discussion, personal reflection and practical advice, the CGHR Practitioner Series brings together high‐level experts working in these fields and creates a forum in which students and researchers can listen and ask questions about what this work actually involves, seek out reflections from experience on the dilemmas and challenges faced, and probe the skill set and experience needed to forge a career in these fields.

This talk is part of the Centre of Governance and Human Rights Events series.
